Catching up .... A Belated Easter Day Post :)
I can't get enough of Spring!
But, this year I'm just not sure there will be enough of it. Cold weather just seems to keep worming it's way back in. Here we are, it's the middle of May and Mark was outside, early, early this morning showering off the plants in the garden to ensure any possible frost gets rinsed away before the sun rises. Bring on the steady temps of 70-80 degrees! Is it really too much to ask?! Ahhh, (insert sigh) I'm somehow always reminded that Mother Nature has a mind of her own! :)
It's been a super busy month and so many photos to share so let's just see if I can cut down on my "jabber" and get to the "good stuff"...at least I sure think so! I hope you do, too! Many of these photo's I've shared on my fb but I'm really thankful that I'm blogging them also. They will forever be logged into the diary of my life! And that's what this blog is! My life and maybe at some point, a little glimpse of yours if our paths should cross! And, I hope they do!
I'll start with Easter! It was such a fun day! These precious little people are four of our grandbabies that we were lucky enough to see on that day! I call this one...
"First Taste of Easter"
This little beauty has always been so patient with her GiGi. She's getting to the age where having her photo made all the time isn't so much fun but on Easter, she posed like the princess she is! I told her I needed to forever have a memory of her in that gorgeous dress her Momma bought for her to wear and if we took her picture then GiGi would always be able to see her in that dress. She just looked at me and smiled. She was sooo excited a couple of weeks later to find out that I had won 1st place at the monthly meeting of Northland Photography Club with the photo of her. The theme for May's meeting was "portraiture." I was honored and very excited myself! I titled it...
This little guy was so happy when the REAL Easter Egg Hunt took place because earlier I had left some empty eggs laying around that I'd wanted to use just for photos and when he opened them, oh my, his little face did not look this happy. A few jelly beans and some chocolate, that's all it took to make him smile this big when he opened the eggs that had the good stuff in them!
"A Sixlet Kind of Happiness"
And, last but not least is my beauties little brother! Not so much a baby anymore but looking quite the fine gentlemen in his Easter suit! Too cute, but oh so sober! I could hardly get him to crack a smile with me until I started telling him we could probably find some trouble to get into together! That managed to bring a half smile to his face at one point!
"A Dapper Dude"
Two of my gorgeous, grown up girls made the photo blog this time around, too!!! :) With so much activity going on that day, somehow I didn't manage to put the families together for photos but these are two of my favorite shots from the day, also. I caught my oldest daughter holding her nephew in such a tender candid, moment. What a special memory for her to have forever. For them both. AND, my daughter in law showing off our 7th grandbaby, due the first of August! :)
